“THE MAJESTIC FORT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

THis is a must visit, if you go to Jaipur.It is about 10 k.m. from the city and easily accessible.You can have ride of your life,once you reach at fort,since elephants' rides are available to climb the fort.You can visit like a maharaja.The sheeshmahal is the best part of the entire fort.The intricate architecture is breath taking and facinating.It is better to take a guide alongwith you and I am sure you will be totally florred while seeing this AMER fort.you need to have at least 3 to 4 hours to see this entire fort.

“Amber Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Beautiful experience, it was all impressive and with the white marble palace, some part of the fort feels so cool. Couldn't go for the elephant ride though. Its worth the visit overall!

“Nice place... think about spending for elephant ride !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Nice artistic piece of history and excellent architecture. We spent around 2 hours inside look at the excellent views from different angles and varying elevations/stairs/balconies.

The driver told us that he would drive us to the Fort through the back gate and save lot of money. Rs.900 is the charge for the elephant ride for 2 persons. We were 4 and we got lot of money covered through this option. Elephant ride is fun, but, we did it at Chokhi Dhani at Rs.50 per head! And also avoided, long queues waiting for elephants, ride on a bright, hot sunny day (around 43 degree Celsius).

“Wow, what views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We arrived fairly early and you do have to queue to get the elephant rides. Be warned the elephants only work for so many hours a day so get there early. The views from the top were stunning and it is amazing how it was built without the mondern technology we have today. There are a lot of hawkers and if you do want to buy something bargain hard, their starting prices are very high. We had a jeep ride down and that was an experience all on it's own!
